NBC will debut a new game show with Howie Mandel, formerly Howie Mandel's White Elephant, in December.

Take It All will launch in a strip and air from Dec. 10-14 at 9 p.m. PT/ET and end the following Monday, Dec 17 with back-to-back episodes from 9-11 p.m. PT/ET.

The Voice will serve as a lead-in to Take It All with one-hour editions of its regular two-hour episodes at 8 p.m. on both Dec. 10 and 17.

The concept for Take It All, ordered to series by NBC in April, is below:

In the show, a contestant selects and opens a prize worth thousands of dollars; dream prizes such as luxury cars, exotic trips, jewelry and VIP experiences. Then, the next player is faced with a dilemma: do they steal a prize that has already been revealed, or do they take a chance with another unopened prize, hoping what's inside is worth more?

But that's just the beginning.  When there are only two contestants left, the players have a life-changing choice to make: keep the prizes they have -- or try and take all the prizes.  If both players choose to "keep mine," they will each keep the prizes they have won in the prior rounds.  If one player chooses "keep mine" and the other chooses to "take it all," the player that chose "take it all" will go home with all the prizes -- theirs and their opponents. But if both choose "take it all," they both go home with nothing.  The stakes are insanely high as each contestant grapples with the choice of a lifetime.

Take It All comes from Universal Television and Alevy Productions. Mandel, Scott St. John and Mike Marks serve as executive producers.

Mandel has served as a judge on America's Got Talent and previously hosted Mobbed, Howie Do It and Deal or No Deal.
